After delivering a verse and a chorus, Metallica front man James Hetfield said, “That’s our little homage to the Pasadena boys, all right? Sorry you had to put up with that! That wasn’t too bad, that was kind of fun.”

Metallica’s North American run in support of last year’s Hardwired… To Self-Destruct will finish up on Aug. 16.

Check out their Van Halen cover below.
